"Tanks are mighty fine things," by Wesley Winans Stout( Book )

10 editions published between 1946 and 2013 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WWII was not just a war of weapons, but also a war of production. One of America's greatest victories on this front was certainly in the city of Detroit, where auto assembly lines were transformed into an arsenal of democracy. Chrysler's Tank Arsenal was the nation's most spectacular war plant, a place where history was made. From it came 25,059 medium and heavy tanks of twelve different types, including the tanks that turned the tide of the war in North Africa. Commissioned by Chrysler President K.T. Keller as a "thank you" for the men and women who made a difference, "Tanks are Mighty Fine Things" was published in 1946 and written by Wesley Stout, the former editor of the Saturday Evening Post. It features rare photographs of the Arsenal and the Sherman, Grant, Pershing and other tanks and armored vehicles it produced.--Publisher's description

Great Engines and Great Planes by Wesley Winans Stout( Book )

2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In time of peace a new aircraft engine is as much as two and a half years from the drawing board to an experimental job on a test stand, another year or more to Army acceptance, still another year or more to production in quantities. New planes normally are flight-tested, modified, retested, modified again and again before a production order. But of desperate necessity, the Air Force was trying to cut this time by two thirds. It did so. The new plane and new engine, unapproved as of January, 1942, knocked Japan out of the war in 1945. When Japan's surrender terminated Chrysler's contract, 18,413 engines had been built and shipped from Chicago. - p. 2-3

A war job "thought impossible" by Wesley Winans Stout( Book )

4 editions published in 1945 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In February, 1945, Chrysler completed one of its war jobs. This was the making of 5,500 gyro-compasses for the Navy. "The completion of this compass," Rear Admiral E. L. Cochrane, chief of the Bureau of Ships, wrote the Corporation, "will mark the completion of one of industry's war contracts originally considered impossible; that is, the manufacture of an intricate, delicate gyro-compass by other than a manufacturer especially trained and skilled in the art." In order to manufacture a precision instrument with ordinary labor, management broke the compass and its machining down into simple components and operations easily taught a novice, so engineered the tooling that the accuracy was transferred from the mechanic to the machine tool. - p. 1-5
